(June 21, 2022 10:38 AM) The City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Department is canceling outdoor programs on Tuesday, June 21 to keep the community safe during today’s hot weather. The following is a list of programs that will not be taking place:
* Walk, Roll & Stroll Jackson program
* Adult Tennis Lessons
* Adult Soccer Program
The Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center will be open for anyone who needs a cool place to get out of the heat.
Residents are welcome to “chill out” at the MLK Center during regular program hours, which is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The center is located at 1107 Adrian St.
The Boos Recreation Center will not be open as a cooling center due to ongoing construction.
NIXON PARK POOL UPDATE:
The Nixon Water Park remains closed, though City staff are working as quickly as possible to get it back open so residents can cool off! The community pool has been closed since the end of the 2019 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The City has faced challenges getting the water park back in working order after being closed for nearly 3 years, but staff expect to make an announcement about the pool opening in the coming days. The City thanks the community for their patience as we work to provide summer fun again in Jackson.
